Octane Boosters

VP Racing Fuels at 2019 SEMA

VP Racing Fuels has two versions of its gasoline additive, the original Octanium and newer Octanium Unleaded. The Octanium additives can eliminate knocking and pinging, clean fuel injectors, eliminate gum and varnish build up, and improve throttle response and acceleration. Octanium is blended for off-road racing applications, increases gasoline octane up to 8 numbers/ 80 points. Octanium Unleaded is formulated to provide the biggest octane boost (up to 7 numbers/70 points), and it is safe to use in vehicles with both catalytic converters and 02 sensors.

Race-Ready Coolants

Stay Frosty, a proprietary VP Racing Fuels coolant, comes in versions: Stay Frosty Racing Coolant and Stay Frosty Hi-Performance Coolant. Both are premixed and ready to use.

Stay Frosty Racing Coolant is formulated for high-compression, high-heat racing engines. It contains a specialized blend of wetting agents that are engineered to drastically improve coolant’s ability to transfer heat away from high-temperature cylinder heads. Temperatures of engines are reduced by up to 100° F compared to conventional glycol-based coolant. This increases the density of the air/fuel mix, and allows ignition timing to be safely advanced without the threat of detonation – resulting in more power and torque. The race-ready coolant has a water-based formula and is free of the slippery/hazardous Glycol that many race organizations and tracks won’t allow.

Stay Frosty Hi-Performance Coolant is aimed at two-wheeled racers of high-performance motorcycle engines that require additional protection from overheating. This coolant is safe for all metals, including aluminum, and it can reduce operating temperatures of engines by up to 25°F compared to conventional glycol-based coolant, which can increase the density of the air/fuel mix, allowing ignition timing to be safely advanced without the threat of detonation — resulting in more power and torque.

ABOUT VP Racing Fuel®

VP Racing Fuels was founded by Steve Burns, a young racer from San Antonio, Texas, who began experimenting with exotic blends of fuel in a quest for optimum horsepower. Steve began at the local tracks of Texas, where racers tried his fuel and liked the power gains, and, in 1974, VP Racing Fuels was founded. VP is now recognized by many as the world leader in race-fuel technology, with a catalog of more than 70 fuel blends and racing products, along with a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports.
